Distance education comes to the Academy: But are we asking the right questions?
Internet and Higher Education Volume 1, Number 2, ISSN 1096-7516 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd
“Distance education” has become the latest fad within The Academy — attracting the attention of a wide range of colleges and universities seeking new markets during a time of financial exigency and rapid technological change. Unfortunately, the rush to make use of digital tools in the delivery of instruction appears to be missing the most important points by trying to deliver the traditional content in different packages. This article explores the depth of the impact which networked, digital technologies are having on the global information environment and calls for the development of new curricula appropriate to that new world. Fundamental questions are raised regarding the kinds of knowledge that are required by students entering the 21st Century as a starting point for helping educators avoid using the new digital tools as a way of delivering a curriculum rendered obsolete by those very tools.
